The Bears announce the signing of four players for 2019.

Honeti Tuha

Tom Freebairn








The North Sydney Bears are excited to announce the signings of Sean Sabutey, Honeti Tuha, Nick O’Meley and Tom Freebairn.

ISP Head Coach Jason Taylor spoke of the signings, “We are very happy with the signing of these four players. Sean was the Club Player of the Year for the Bears last year and we will be hoping he can pick up where he left off.

Honeti is an 89 game veteran in the ISP and gives us some fantastic versatility as he can play centre, wing and fullback and knows how to find the try line.

Tom is entering his third season with the Bears and will provide strong defence in our forward pack in 2019. He was selected in the NSW Pioneers v QLD Rangers Ron Massey representative game last year and will continue to push for higher honours with the bears.

Finally, Nick, son of Mark O’Meley, has been in the Roosters system for the past few years. He is at home on the wing or at fullback and played a few games for Wyong ISP last season. It’s fair to say his fleet footed running style on the wing is a little different to his straight running father.”

The Bears will be announcing player signings fortnightly over the off-season.
